Anything Goes Linky # 146, Fire Pit Giveaway, Features, And Surgery Date

Photobucket
Grab code from right sidebar please.

Welcome to the party! First up, thank you everyone for your words of encouragement. I read all the sweet comments, and try to get back to everyone. Forgive me if I missed someone. I just want to let you know how much your kind words mean to me. My surgery date is set for Tuesday the 25th of this month! I should have my results of all three biopsies a week after that, so the waiting will soon be over. 


I do have some wonderful news. Serenity Health asked if I would pick out a favorite fire pit from their wonderful selection, to giveaway to one Bacon Time reader! They offer many beautiful items for the home, in doors and out.  Someone at this party will be winning a brand new Outdoor Classic Bravado Mesh Fire Pit, a $144.95 value. It was my favorite one, and I hope you all love it too.  It's perfect for lots of outdoor Summer night fun! Make sure to enter on the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win. This giveaway has been brought to Bacon Time  by Serenity Health And Home Decor. Open to USA residents. 

Now for some features, or rather some sweet mellow yellow features. I had no theme in mind for this weeks picks, but for some reason, all the posts I really loved this week were yellow and sweet:

I tried lemon curd for the first time about a month ago, and fell in love. I seriously could eat it by the spoonful, but I will try not to.  It's kind of expensive in the grocery store though. I can't wait to try this homemade lemon curd recipe shared by Mrs Domestic Bliss. It's a must at your Spring brunches, and makes a great hostess gift.


Banana Rum Cupcakes shared by Moments With Mandi has me drooling. Yes she had my full attention at Rum! 


I made lemon and blueberry french toast this week for my family. I have always loved the combination of lemon and blueberries. I can't wait to try this Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake shared by Delightful E Made. 

You don't have to look in my Etsy shop long, to discover I am a bit obsessed with teapots.  It should come at no surprise that I love these Teapot Cookies and Cake shared by The Blackberry Vine. 

It's time to party!
